Sinopsis: "U.S. Marine Major Peter Newman, A highly decorated hero, was content doing his job- leading his troops into harms way. He was good at it. But the White House had other plans for him. When Newman is handpicked for a dangerous clandestine operation as the head of the White House Special Projects Office, his orders are clear- hunt down and eliminate terrorists before they attack the United States with weapons of mass destruction. From the corridors of power in Washington to the heart of the Middle East, Newman finds himself on an assignment so sensitive that it's known only to a handful of officials as he becomes entagled in a nightmarish web of intrigue, revenge, and betrayal.
Biografía del autor: Oliver North is a combat decorated marine, a #1 best-selling author, the founder of a small business, an inventor with three U.S. patents, a syndicated newspaper columnist, former candidate for the United States Senate, popular public speaker, the host of a nationally syndicated daily radio show and the host of the weekly television series, War Stories on the FOX News channel, yet claims his most important accomplishment as being "the husband of one and the father of four."
North was born in San Antonio, Texas, graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, and served 22 years as a U.S. Marine. His awards for service in combat include the Silver Star, the Bronze Star for valor and two Purple Hearts for wounds in combat.
